    Architecture as a profession and a practice is constituted by a set of codes and conditions that embed the discipline within a regulated environment of production and exchange. What does it mean for Architecture if these formal protocols are transgressed and space is produced under the conditions of an informal economy? This series of classes will ask how architecture can operate within an alternative economy and what that implies for its users.

  • On Violence

    Violence (and its many manifestations) has always been a part of politics (or anti-politics); it may even be integral to it. This first meeting of “On Violence” will focus on the historical debate around state violence, revolutionary violence, 'legitimate' violence, and radical self-defense in the anarchist movement. For the last 150 years, anarchists have often been portrayed as an outsider bogeyman: either hooded & holding a lit bomb; as a ruthless bandit expropriating for their own gain; or hooded & hijacking peaceful demonstrations for their own ends.

  • Rammed Earth Construction, Politics and Society

    There are many advantages to earth constructions but the two main disadvantages are : compressive strength and labor costs.
